Welcome to Bridgewater School. Your individual journey starts here.

At Bridgewater School, we celebrate, support and nurture individuality.

We provide independent education for boys and girls aged 3-18 years in an inspirational setting that is inclusive, stimulating, supportive and totally focused on achieving every student's personal goals.

We are proud of our family ethos, our consistently outstanding results and our forward-thinking academic environment.

But most of all, we are proud to be part of each child's individual journey.

Small is beautiful. And academically successful.

Ever since the school’s inception in 1950, our family ethos has ensured that each young person is treated very much as an individual. Although the scale and academic stature of the school have grown alongside our new buildings and facilities, we are still small enough to know each young person by name and develop a true understanding of their specific needs and abilities.
